Giving away your location //two ideas for the gameplay//

Post by NinaLeonie » Tue Aug 07, 2018 2:52 pm

Hello,
I have an important suggestion and I'm pretty sure someone already asked for that, but hear me out:
I think you all know the scenario pretty well, you don't want to stick to the alpha all day, so you decide to go solo for a while, the problem? You cant finish any boss, because you are alone and you need a little help. No other player is in sight, and describing your location in the chat takes long and no one would find you.

I have this issue a lot and it really bothers me, so I came up with two solutions.
Nr1: Name official locations on the map. It would be way easier to give away your location if you could just say "I'm at the great mountain" instead of being forced to describe it. Naming the locations would make it easier for packs to communicate and find each other and it's overall way more relaxing.

Nr2: this one is a little more complicated, but in my opinion a great idea to improve the game and make the gameplay more interesting even if you're not alpha.
So the idea is, to add a howl button to the game, but not like the one who brings you to the spawn, or the one the alpha has. It's more like a button you press, when you see a boss, you want to fight and you need help, or you want to hunt with some people. You press it, your character howls, but instead of creating a portal like the alpha, your location will be marked on the map with a bright, red dot for around five minutes. Everyone who wants to join you/help you can now find you easily.

I don't know, how ard both of them are to imply into the game, but I think they can improve both gameplay and communication, so I would be really glad, to see maybe one of them in the game. Thoughts?

LG Nina

I agree. I was just playing, and I was trying to find someone so we could fight bulls together. The problem was, I was the alpha and was trying to find the bulls, so teleportation was useless. I think the second option sounds perfect: it doesn't automatically make everyone overpowered, but it allows you to call for help or find someone you're looking for.

Totally agree with this idea, finding someone right now is a struggle we need something like a “help” button that indeed gives a red mark where you are so your more easly to find 🐺🙌🏼

Your first solution is a really good idea. I know that some players already have names for parts of the maps but it would be nice to have a set name so everyone won't be confused about e.g. which waterfall or which cave area.

The second idea is just as good. It doesn't make the Alpha's howl useless but it takes consideration of everyone else who is playing in the game.

I think another idea could be letting friends teleport to friends whenever they join a co-op room. It would make life a lot more easier in the game and can create a more useful aspect of the friends feature. Of course, in PvP this probably shouldn't happen or there would be no point of fighting with an Alpha call.

Great suggestions! I totally support your idea of giving away one's location. It would make hunting in COOP much less frustrating and much more fun! :D

This would be great. Like a help request button, that has a location in the map. An exclamation point maybe :!: . :D

I use to think your first suggestion would be needed until I realized its not. When I am not alpha and I need help, I just say this: "Champ, bottom, left." I write where I am on the map. You are on top, bottom, middle, left,or right. Its not hard for other to come find you that way. Your suggestion would be awesome and more convenient. Better yet, the whole red dot location idea would be fantastic =)

Both of these ideas would be great additions to the game. I've been in plenty of situations where I was on my own and it's basically impossible to describe your location. So making landmarks would be great, along with the howl. :)
